They seem intent on trading on their Man vs. Food appearance for all eternity, but sometimes a big pile of crap is just a big pile of crap. The food was ok, but there's no reason to settle for just "ok" in an area where there's so much REALLY GOOD BBQ to be had. Even Roscoe's just on the other... More

Paid $14 and got maybe 12 little end pieces of brisket. . Not even 1/4 pound... Food was good and staff and owner was extremely friendly ... Can't say anything bad except small portions for the $$$$$$

A co-worker and I had lunch here for the first time today. The food was excellent, we had a great pleasant waitress, and the restaurant was very clean. Great Experience. Regular ribs, fries, and a variety of sauces.

This is a great place on the western side of KC, perfect place to stop on the way to Topeka. The service was fast and friendly. If you visit from out of town you'll get to put a pin in the world map to mark your home town. Man vs. Food visited here a few years back and to date... More

The BBQ here is always delicious and the service is great. Papa Bob makes all his own sauces. If he isn't too busy, he will even come out & say hello! Very friendly atmosphere. We go there quite often!!

We recently moved to Kansas and as bbq lovers were looking forward to trying famous Kansas City bbq. We've been several places and have continuously been disappointed. Then one day we saw this place on Man vs Food and thought we should try them. We drove an hour and a half to visit and it was well worth it! Meat... More

We live about a half an hour away, so we don't get to Papa Bob's very often. But it has always been great. Today we had the rib platter which had at least six bones and two sides and the large pork sandwich with slaw. Both were excellent, ribs were tender, but not so much that they " fell off... More

A great BBQ restaurant located on Rt 32 just east of Highway 7. Food and sauce is great and reasonably priced. Service is good and quick and all of the staff was very friendly, so it is a good atmosphere to relax in. I had a combination meat sandwich and the baked beans which were very good. There are many...
